Freeman Heights Baptist Church is a group of believers living life together as we worship God, serve others, and grow in our faith.  We believe that the God of all creation loved us enough that while we were yet sinners, He sent Jesus Christ to take the punishment for our sins upon Himself at the cross.  He was buried and three days later, He was resurrected, conquering death and making it possible for our relationship with God to be reconnected, if we believe on Christ and His atoning sacrifice.  Because of our belief, the Holy Spirit resides in us and seals us as children of God.
For a deeper look at our beliefs…
Freeman Heights was started as a mission church of First Baptist Church of Berryville in 1959.  Since then, our styles  and the way ministries function have may have changed, but the Word of God has never changed and it never will here at Freeman Heights.  We’d love to show you why we think Freeman is a great place for you.
